two other segments, namely, prosthetics, and bracing and support. Foot & ankle prosthetics has gained a significant amount of footing since the introduction of technologically advanced devices and materials such as the pneumatic foot, carbon fiber, microprocessor-controlled, and hydraulic controlled prosthetic feet. Bracing and support consists of a large range of devices, utilized on the basis of type of injury. Braces are available for minor strains and twists, along with heavy-duty braces for postoperative recuperation.
The main drivers for the foot & ankle devices market are the rise in sports injuries, which commonly involve serious ankle injuries, increasing incidences of road accidents, and rise in rate of diabetes, which leads to the deterioration of foot & ankle area caused by large sores and infections. The foot & ankle extremity market will grow substantially in the coming decade with advances in technology.
